Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs

    one rack of pork baby back ribs
    juice of one lemon
    1/4 cup dry rub (your own or my recipe)
    1/2 cup barbeque sauce (your own or my recipe)
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes
    Total Time: 3 hours
    Preheat oven to 300° F.
    Remove excess fat from ribs. Peel the silver skin off the back of the ribs – lift with a sharp knife and grab with a paper towel to remove.
    Cut ribs apart into individual pieces.
    Rub ribs all over with lemon juice.
    Coat ribs with dry rub. Place meat side down in large baking pan, & cover tightly with foil, shiny side out.
    Bake in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.
    Remove from oven & pour off liquid.
    Brush bbq sauce over all sides of ribs.
    Grill: To finish ribs on the grill, remove from the pan and place ribs on the grill (I use a basket over direct but low heat) basting and turning a few times for about 10 minutes.
    Oven: To finish ribs in the oven, set oven to broil and return ribs to the same oven rack, uncovered, basting and broiling about 5 minutes per side, watching so they don’t burn. They will be so tender, it’s best to turn them using gloved hands.
